Ah, that was a great headline. Back when Android was just starting to catch on as a mainstream OS and be taken seriously, Google introduced the second iteration of their Nexus brand. The brand was in its prime in my opinion, untarnished by tablets from every size, and what feels now like every manufacturer. Nexus was Nexus, a pure Google device, that got updates immediately.
I miss those days, when developers, not consumers, clamoured at the release of Google devices. Back when Google packed every new piece of technology into these phones as an example for developers, not a high-end consumer-oriented smartphone.
I don’t use my Nexus S anymore, it has since been replaced by an HTC One S, and now an iPhone 5. I’ve toyed with the idea of a Nexus 4, but to me it doesn’t have the draw that previous iterations had. If I’m going to get a high-end smartphone, why wouldn’t I go with the Samsung Galaxy S4 or an HTC One?

Also, read the question — it’s a non-answer.
A lot of gems here. Like:
All new consumer PCs are now Windows 8 based. So in that sense, I would say that here the adoption rate is perfect.
That’s one way to look at it. And:
Oh, I don’t know. Our number one thing is supplying products to consumers. That’s kind of what we do.
So. Many. Quotes.(via parislemon)
Oh Mr. Ballmer…
I’ve got so much to manage these days… Between school, projects I’ve taken on, and other stuff like that I have literally no time to stop and think. I’m thinking about putting most of my projects on hold, and focusing only on two or three… I don’t know…
I think I just need to list off what needs to get done step by step. That would probably make it less overwhelming and simplify most of it.
Oh well, I should sleep. I can figure it out tomorrow and over the long weekend.
Edit: I had no idea you could use tags on Tumblr. You learn something new every day…
